Born in New York, Mathieu Mirano attended the Huntington School of Fine Arts before studying at Parsons School of Design in New York City. Through his inspired inventiveness and unique perspective on design, Mirano effectively and consistently utilizes high levels of construction, craft and imagination. At just 21 years of age, Mathieu has already proven to be a promising young American designer.
Mirano’s highly praised capsule collection, as well as his private commissions for special occasion gowns, prompted him to launch his eponymous Fall collection in 2012. With a background in fine arts and classical piano, Mathieu draws inspiration from many world renowned composers such as Camille Saint-Saëns and Philip Glass. Additionally, Mathieu garners inspiration for color, patterns, shapes and textures from his extensive travels and cultural experiences in Europe, Asia and Africa.
The Mathieu Mirano brand focuses intensely on tailoring, quality, luxury, invention of new fabrics and embroideries, and the juxtaposition between soft femininity and hard structure. With each piece following a “second skin” blueprint, Mathieu’s collections continuously utilize classic, iconic shapes to create a flattering silhouette while staying modern through its execution. The combination of these elements creates garments with an unexpected editorial twist as well as a classic, flattering aesthetic.
For the past year, the Mathieu Mirano brand has attracted the attention of national and international top tier fashion publications as well as celebrities such as Nicole Richie, Lady Gaga, and Gabrielle Union. Mathieu shows a full collection each season at New York Fashion Week.
